AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson gave Hendrick Motorsports
its first NASCAR Sprint Cup victory of the year, winning a fuel
gamble Saturday night at Phoenix International Speedway.
As leader after leader dove for the pits to take on gas in the
waning laps, Johnson's No. 48 Chevrolet stayed on track and the
two-time reigning Cup champion made it to the finish, beating Clint
Bowyer - another gambler - by 7.002 seconds.
